. the power to solve this is in our hands. >> arthel: meanwhile, arizona senator jon kyl delivering the republican address. he is accusing democrats of using the debt crisis to raise taxes instead of viewing it as an opportunity to rein in spending. >> unfortunately, after weeks of negotiations, it became clear that democrats in washington did not view this crisis as an opportunity to rein in spending. instead, they saw it as an opportunity to impose huge tax increases on american families and small businesses. president obama is simply too committed to the european style of big government, that his policies have set in motion. to democrats in washington, the isn't to cut spending, but to raise taxes and keep on spending. democrats claim they would only target the privileged few, but behind the scenes, they argue for much broader tax increases. >> arthel: it looks like we may be hearing from senator reid very soon. in the meantime, the senate is expected to vote early sunday morning to cut off debate on its own debt ceiling plan. rick? >> rick: just as advertised, senator harry reid
